We conclude that locks based on message passing should be considered as a replacement for hardware locks in future scalable multiprocessors that support efficient message passing mechanisms. ... We propose three message passing lock (MP-LOCK) algorithms (centralized, distributed, and reactive) and provide implementation guidelines. ... Finally, we provided guidelines for designing synchronization mechanisms in clusters of workstations that are equipped with message passing communication mechanisms. ...doi:10.1109/hpca.1999.744381 dblp:conf/hpca/KuoCK99 fatcat:egdu26242jatrlgkxg3t7urwpa
